I had a great time in Arizona last week.

I had a great time in Arizona last week. I had two FRC's (Front Room Concerts) in and around Mesa, and finished off with an amazing concert at Eastern Arizona College in the beautiful town of Thatcher. Here's what I have to say about that:

What I learned from the Jarmans' FRC:
1. Every young man should be an Eagle Scout. It shows a lot about his character and dedication, not to mention it impresses fathers of would-be girlfriends.
2. Spontaneous group sing-a-longs are both spontaneous and sing-a-long-y. (And once you get started, it's hard to get back on track.)
3. Keeping your shirt on is difficult for some people, no matter how public or embarrassing the location may be.
4. If you believe in yourself, you can do it!
5. You're never too young to heckle a blonde singer-songwriter singing in your back yard.

A letter to Laura Freebairn:
Dear Laura,
How can I get into your preschool? Is there an age limit? I know a lot of people who could write a letter of recommendation for me. I'm really good with finger paints, singing with a group spontaneously (see above lessons learned), and eating play-doh. I already feel at home in your house, so I won't cry when my caregiver drops me off.

Why EAC is the MVP:
Copper (Tink!) Cotton (Ahhh!) and Cows (Moo, moo, moo, moo). I may lay my head on a pillow in California, but my heart will forever sleep in Thatcher.

I always count myself fortunate when I am among Arizonians. Until the next time...

Long live the Gila!

P.S. See more pictures from my trip to AZ in my photo album!

Dear Kirby,

On behalf of Laura’s preschool class, we thank you for your interest in joining our organization. Your abilities at finger painting, singing, and eating Play-Doh are most commendable, and your height would give us a definite edge in the “Duck, Duck, Goose” competition with the kindergarteners.

Unfortunately, one of our officers, Billy (not the one who eats his boogers, the other one), thinks that you are a “Dookie-Face”. Also, there is a disturbing 27 year gap in your preschool skills on your CV. Because of these facts, in conjunction with the current challenging economic climate, we do not see our way clear to offering you a position with our organization at this time.
With regrets
Jimmy Age 4
Preschooler in charge of Human Resources and putting the blocks away.
